Sorry, guys, no idea how to get past this... wouldn't it be align-items?

I believe I simply didn't understand this question. I thought the STRETCH option on the align-items would solve the problem, but I am getting an error. Can you help?

.row {
  display: flex;

.column {
align-content: stretch;
}

    <div class="row">   
      <div class="secondary column">
        <h2>How to get here</h2>
        <p>Tiramisu caramels gummies chupa.</p>
      </div>

      <div class="primary column">
        <h2>Welcome!</h2>
        <p>Everything in this city is worth waiting in line for.</p>
        <img src="treats.svg" alt="treats">
      </div>

      <div class="tertiary column">
        <h2>Great food</h2>
        <p>Croissant macaroon pie brownie.</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </body>

:point_right: Align-items affects the cross axis, in this case vertical.

But what is wanted here is to fill the main axis (horizontal). So the property you would set is flex-grow.

Whenever you need a quick flexbox reference, try A Complete Guide to Flexbox.

You need to set each column to occupy its full width or capacity, so you need to set.

.column { flex-grow: 1; }
